The CoDesign lab focuses on “extreme design”, that is design that redefines its traditional limits and explores new territories and unconventional practices and collaborations in: science, society, politics, and art.
The lab build a semiotic model of design as a “meaning making” process that studies the rationale of design through a diversity of situations of conception to elucidate methods and concepts. It elaborates methods to build artefacts and services that test our hypotheses on design as a meaning making process articulating engineering, social sciences, and humanities. Members therefore work closely with engineering scientists to develop new media: distributed mobile architectures, pervasive computing, connected objects, virtual intelligent agents, etc. The CoDesign Lab study new design practices such as critical design, ludic design, speculative design and more generally all forms of exploratory design and generative practices in society.
